According to information from a uto motor und sport , Audi is planning a large, sporty crossover one year later, following the large SUV C-BEV announced for 2018 with a theoretical range of almost 600 km. The electric car with the working title ESS will compete against Tesla's Model S. Like the C-BEV, the A7-style car will also have a theoretical range of 600 km.
Smaller electric cars will come later
Only then will Audi also plan two smaller cars with electric drives . The shape of the body has not yet been decided. One of the small E-Audis should compete in the compact class, for the other model the developers are thinking about a spatial concept. “This architecture enables us to create more space on the same footprint because no installation space has to be provided for the combustion engine. A spatial concept is a good idea, ”says someone familiar with the project to auto motor und sport . But it will definitely not be a van, but rather an SUV.
At the same time, Audi boss Rupert Stadler wants to electrify the existing series more than before.
